Photos: The Force Is Strong With These Off-Menu Star Wars Chocolates
A limited off-menu selection of Star Wars-themed chocolates at a hip downtown restaurant may be enough to turn you over to the Dark Side.
In anticipation of the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, DTLA darling Faith & Flower is offering a secret desert board featuring beautiful, hand-made chocolates inspired by the iconic series. The stellar mini-dessert platter—aka a mignardises board—includes a chocolate Millennium Falcon bonbon, a dark chocolate Darth Vader head filled with caramel, a white chocolate Storm Trooper mask, a dark chocolate Death Star covered with edible gold dust and a green Lightsaber made with absinthe candy dipped in chocolate. There's even a nod to the original Star Wars trilogy with the addition of a Han Solo frozen in dark chocolate "carbonite."
Faith & Flower's pastry chef Josh Graves developed the intricate desserts, which will be available off-menu through December—perfect for getting you ready to watch the new installment, which opens December 18. There's even talk that a gummy Jabba The Hut is in the works...
